Abstract

[Truncated] The purpose of this study was to develop and prospectively test a number of innovations that might simplify or improve various aspects of specialist Radiation Oncology training or radiation treatment. Opportunities for innovation in radiation therapy were systematically considered. Areas of particular need identified included the development and application of knowledge regarding radiotherapy and where treatments are difficult for patients. The particular areas of innovation most suitable to the circumstances included themes of the training of Radiation Oncologists, patient immobilisation and shortened courses of radiotherapy. A series of studies were developed utilising a range of different study designs and endpoints.
